Helping Domestic Violence Victims Overcome PTSD

Posted by familydynamics on January 22, 2008

A researcher from the Summa-Kent State Center for Treatment and Study of Traumatic Stress is launching the second phase of a study geared toward ending the lingering effects of domestic violence by treating post-traumatic stress disorder.

Dr. Dawn Johnson, clinical coordinator for the traumatic stress center, recently received $525,000 from the National Institute of Mental Health to develop a treatment program for battered women in shelters.

Through the three-year study, Johnson wants to develop a one-on-one counseling program that she has already been testing among women in the Battered Women’s Shelter of Summit and Medina Counties since 2003.

If you live in Ohio, please check into this program if you are in need of help.

    Is there a programme for male victims of domestic abuse?

    I do not know if there is a program for men. There should be one because men too can be victims of domestic violence.
